    look up half inch socket cap, harbor freight sells it it has a bolt head on the end of it so you can use a box wrench to give you the ability when it’s a tight fit

    it’s 2.2 inches dimension on the inside of the Coupler I had a friend use bench lathe to turn it down. Try and find a half inch drive 1 3/4 socket , don’t make the mistake I did by buying a 3/4 inch drive socket makes things way more difficult
